      Southbound traffic on Connecticut Avenue is blocked just north of the Dupont Circle Metro station after a rollover car accident, police say.

      Police and fire officials say that the driver of the car that rolled over in the 1600 block of Connecticut Avenue suffered serious but non-life threatening injuries.

      The driver was extricated from the vehicle and taken to an area hospital.
